This is a small town with so much packed into it! There are outdoor activities, great restaurants, and plenty of nightlife. It's great for college-aged residents, in addition to being a great retirement area.
Recently moved here amazing college town tucked in the mountains. Perfect for outdoor activities including hiking, boating, tubing, walking, wildlife viewing and so much more. Considerable amount of local delicious dining and shopping. Decent name brand shopping and dining as well. Would love to see a Hobby Lobby though, I miss that.
It is a typical college town (college of over 25,000) in a small, rural town of only about 10,000. There's only one public high school for the whole town; that's how small it is. There is a lot to do, IF you are into the great outdoors. There are mountains to hike, waterfalls to explore, and tons of different farms to see. You are also very close to places like Luray caverns, the city of Roanoke, West Virginia, and North Carolina. The school draws a diverse crowd of residents, as well as musicians and art exhibits that the whole town can experience.
